Namaste, Chris here with an update,
Our journey is going well, Jess has a bit of an upset stomach but is ok and some of our plans have changed :)
Now instead of spending 4 days in Delhi after our tour ends six of us in the group are getting an overnight train to udapur to stay with our tour leader Yosh and celebrate the holi festival (festival of colours). We will then catch a flight back to Delhi in time to catch our flight to Thailand. None of us in the group really wanted to spend more time in Delhi so after some discussion and two bottles of rum later we decided to do this :)
Since we've been out of Delhi things have been a lot calmer and we're not so harassed. Rajasthan is beautiful and Jaipur is a nice city which is not as intense as Delhi. The dinner with the Indian family was fun as we were made to dress up in traditional Indian clothing and dance to Hindi music in front of everyone, although just at that moment my back started to hurt and I got to, I mean had to, sit it out! What bad luck I have ;) Everything else has been great, we have visited the abandoned capital city in Rajasthan, forts, temples, mosques, the step wells, old villages and a tiny school.
We have the next two nights in Jaipur and then back to the cauldron of Delhi.
Jess sends her love.
